Serotonin receptor: A rheostat in brain for emotion that may be linked to depression

from Eurekalert - 01 Oct 06

Although drugs that target the brain''s serotonin system are in wide use for treating depression, the basic biological mechanism by which they help alleviate symptoms is poorly understood. Now, new research suggests these drugs work by acting on a specific serotonin receptor, which was found to play a key role in regulating the response of the amygdala, much like a rheostat. These receptors also may contribute to one''s vulnerability for depression.
